I was looking for a way to highlight the sea-like sculptural waves of Richard Serra's piece, Wake, which can be experienced in Seattle at the open air Olympic Sculpture Park. I decided to capitalize on an image I took back in 2009 and marry it to a long exposure sky that I had photographed in 2010. My intention was to create an artwork of an artwork, one that used the parlor tricks of long exposure and compositing to further highlight the feeling of motion that Serra's sculpture expresses when you see it in person. Perhaps, in the end, this is more of an homage to Serra's intriguing artwork than anything else.

Michael Salmela I knew exactly what these were when I saw them. I live only a few blocks away from Olympic Sculpture Park and visit often. I've tried to shoot these myself in the past but to no avail. I think what you've achieved here is perfect for these sculptures, very well done, Nathan.
